with john mccain . the waning days in the 08 campaign john mccain came out with j the plumber. you remember one of his surrogates and beating up on senator barack obama and only 4000 people fit and democrats said john mccain can't get big crowds and then senator obama was nearby cleveland, the final weekend of an outdoor crowd of 80,000 people . this morning, barack obama is coming to the gym where john mccain and giving you on the perspective of enthusiasm being down. the president will bring out celebrities as he goes with yay z and stevie wonder and bruce springsteen and having concerts and rallis and trying in the early votersing states like ohio and florida and like colorado where their they are getting the early vote out there. and two other thing that is the president is trying to d heh enthusiasm. he is not the candidate of change and mitt romney is the cand date of change. the president bushing back and tough on mitt romney and said he is recycling old failed economic policies of the past . that is one way to push back and number two. president said in states like ohio there is pro
this bragging that we get every year was being done by a prominent john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that came out yesterday. you take that apart. it's pretty close to the internal polls. what it shows is that john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we'll think we got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. you know, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain and we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, as we learn that john mccrane surprised them and won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his political enemies, just gratuitously throwing that in. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his
john mccain demanding justice and he joins us live this hour. >> steve: plus sandy ripping apart communities all across the eastern northeast, but she could pack a political punch as well next tuesday. dick morris is next with what sandy means for the election jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about a
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out
for the democrats. in fact, i secretly suspect that john mccain voted for obama in the last election. but i don't think it's such a terrible thing. a lot of irish catholics voted for jfk because he was the first irish catholic president. i don't think it's a slander upon colin powell to say this, though i don't particularly think it's true. >> the insult isn't that voted for barack obama. it's why. >> it's because he's black. i don't think that's such a terrible thing to say. like i say, lots of irish catholics voted for jfk just because he was irish catholic. >> john sununu has assumed that was the motivation behind what colin powell has done. colin powell has never used that as the reason for why he's voted for obama. >> he's probably wrong. i just don't think it's such a terrible thing to speculate about. >> if you play the race card in putting into colin powell's mouth words he hasn't actually used for his reasoning, that's just playing a race game, a rather unpleasant race game. >> maybe. but i bet there are a lot of black people who are very proud of having the first black president. i do
: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
, this is a map of where the votes were four years ago. for john mccain, john mccain's votes in the red here and this beige color up here. weld county up here at the top of the state, a pivotal base of conservative support typically. president obama did especially well right here in denver, and i just obscured it with my circling, but up there in boulder county. also pueblo county, he is expected to do well. but the rest of the state, well, what are you seeing in terms of support for mitt romney this time around? >> well, mitt romney's doing really well. you know, last week he had a rally at red rocks where he got, you know, 10,000 people, and then they were turning people away. tried to go see him and paul ryan. this saturday he's got another rally at a big sort of concert arena that holds 18,000 people. the campaign says they're hoping to fill that, they think they're going to fill that. but, you know, last night president obama was in boulder which is a blue area of the state simply trying to get out the vote at this point. i don't think anyone thinks there's that many undecided voters, s
both stand by. up next we will hear from both congress people on benghazi-gate and senator john mccain as well on benghazi-gate and two more prominent members of congress join the debate which may determine who wins the white house. we'll be right back. this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. >>> are you disappointed even with the damning cables showing what the white house knew and what he they knew it the issue apparently not gaining the traction perhapses it should with the american people? >> i have been deeply disappointed. it is like a lot of the scandals that you and i have tracked over the years the initial problem if there is a coverup becomes much, much worse and i don't have to tell you that there were signs of the problem, our consulate was attacked in april a
in pennsylvania. pennsylvania has been fool's gold for years. john mccain went there at the end of the campaign last time. george w. bush went there at the end of the campaign in 2004. in the end, i think, they can't crack ohio and because they can't crack ohio, they've got to look somewhere else. they are looking are to pennsylvania, minnesota. i don't think they are going to win either of those states. >> now, the campaign's closing argument, we keep talking about closing arguments but they sound very similar to the opening arguments. listen to this. >> i'll lead america to a better place. this is not a time for america to settle. we're four days away from a fresh start. four days away from the fresh day of a new beginning. >> america has always done best when everybody has a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules. that's what we believe. that's why you elected me in 2008 and that's why i'm running for second term as president of the united states of america. >> so we're still basically talking about fairness and about a new direction? >>
. that happened on september 11th a group of senators including senator john mccain writing to president obama asking him to stop stonewalling and tell congress and the american people what the administration knew and when they knew it. this comes as now we are learning more about internal surveillance video of the attack which apparently led to the arrest of a tunisia man, ali al-harzi, and a suspect detained in turkey days after the attack. so far u.s. interrogators have not had access to him. ambassador john bolton, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor. he joins us now. the fbi took, well, the investigation into what happened at the embassy took a long time to get going. now we've got word that this guy, actually two suspects, perhaps, are under arrest but we haven't been able to talk to them yet? >> yeah. this is really outrageous and one of the follow-on consequences from the badly misguided way the obama administration has handled this entire affair, from the lack of security enhancements requested in libya by our people before the september 11 attack, inadequ
has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but h

than john mccain was. there has been no engagement so there's -- there has been a better opportunity for him there, andrea. i think that's what you're seeing here a little bit and i think the obama campaign realizes they have to respond. >> and what about the des moines register editorial, we say editorials don't make a lot of difference but iowa is where barack obama got his first lift by beating the field in those caucuses back in '08. it's got to sting some. >> absolutely. it's a symbolic sting. there was that bizarre kerfuffle between the president, the white house, the campaign and the editorial board. how much did that contribute to this? i think iowa is more important to romney's math than even ohio. that's why they're trying to grab on to this to show that it's evidence of momentum. >> chuck todd, thanks so much from the white house today. and joining me to discuss the final week of campaigning, less than a week and the political impacts of sandy from the democrats' perspective is stephanie cutter. thanks for joining us. what do you do about the hurricane, lost time, lost abi
we saw a real sharp contrast between john mccain and president obama, and i think people, you know, times like this you look to your leaders and see how they hnl handle crises. i think it's not just that he's a quick study. i think he's a very steady lead leader. he's proven that time and again. it is part of being an incumbent that people in a time of crisis get to see how you handle a situation like this. i think he's done a good job. he'll do a good job and that may remind people, this guy is a good guy to have in a storm or a good guy to have in a crisis. it's not just about political study though. >> it is about political study in this calculation with respect to this election, particularly what i've been hearing from the left about how this is going to be some boon or benefit for the president. i don't think the people are looking at it in those terms. i'm certainly as a political analyst don't look at it in those terms. i think the reality of it is the president has an expectation of doing his job. that was one of the shortcomings for george bush was he did not do the job as
encouraged here. four years ago president obama was beating john mccain 55-40 in this survey, and now romney is leading obama 52-45. andrea, how conclusive? what do you draw from this? >> this is a very big deal. for weeks, bill we've heard the media selling the storyline that supposedly obama is crushing romney in early voting and we see that that is just not true. it shows that he's up seven points. and by the way, bill, that is a 22 point collapse from where president obama was in 2008. bob mentioned the swing states, let's take a look at those. you see that romney is leading in early voting in florida, and in colorado, and leading with absentee ballots in florida and pennsylvania. i would point out with ohio, by the way the president is down 22 million votes and program l 220,220,000 votes. and romney is up 260. this is not good news for obama. >> let's put something in perspective. florida and colorado have already had republican edges in early voting number one. pennsylvania as well, i might point out because democrats vote more on election today. in ohio it's not even close, in terms
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
obama won handily against john mccain and mitt romney has not spent a great deal of time. earlier in the summerrer went to the pittsburg area, the coalfields in order to talk about the coal community that makes up so much of western pennsylvania, west virginia, eastern ohio, and it's two things, it's a recognition of the obama campaign's slippage in pennsylvania, as well as in minnesota and michigan, that the romney campaign has increased its advertis advertising and built a presence there in the last several days. it is also an opportunity to hedge against some slippage in ohio, should mr. romney not win the buckeye state, the bell weather will no republican wins the white house without wink that first he's going to need michigan and pennsylvania and that may figure into that. when you look at the ground game, surveys suggest is a lot more even than the public reports suggest, the obama campaign and romney campaign both predict they are going to within. the romney campaign does show a degree of convincing consciousness. they have reason for anxiousness. it's uncertain they have w
. this is mccain/kennedy. in 2008, when the candidates were running, john mccain took his name off the bill. it's not true it was killed by both parties. >> let's talk about what barack obama has done. he hasn't proposed a plan. one thing that comes out of the book is president obama doesn't enjoy the policy negotiations with congress. itis not his thing. >> why wuld you enjoy that? you would have to be a masochist to enjoy that. >> it's how you pass it. bill clinton did enjoy it. maybe he was a masochist. >> he was impeached. >> exactly. that's what he got for it. >> you have to get into the nitty gritty and have those policies. >> let me ask you about this. romney, we all saw him get up there and take the wood to rick perry in the primaries on immigration. you want to spend $100,000 of taxpayer money on these illegals that are coming into the country? it's what you want to do? the question is, why did he do that? the answer is clear. the incentives are to use that language, beat up and get to the right of people. if those are the incentives, why are they going to be any different? when are th
the cincinnati area. president obama did very well in hamilton county, eliminating any opportunity that john mccain had to win in 2008. so that's got to change if romney is going to win. of course you've got a very important personage in ohio who is working very hard in an area where he has influence. his name of course is senator robb portman, the guy who also played president obama in the debate drills leading up to that october 3rd debate in denver that changed everything in this campaign. bill: yeah. professor, thank you. you know i know you try to gauge like the little nuances in elections and we try to do the same. you can drive throughout ham milton county, west side of town, east side of town and count the yard signs. i'm telling you professor, it is almost 50/50, almost dead-even between the romney folks and the obama folks. if that is a gauge tough to go on based on that but thank you for your time. larry sabato, university of virginia there. >> thank you. bill: he said it. it is a battleground right, martha? we'll see which way we go throughout the day. back to you in new york. martha: f
't. senator lindsey graham and senator john mccain who spent a lot of time investigating and this pushing this forward because of concern for our con shuts all across the world and as well as the lives of those four, pushed forward and say waited a second, we need the people who perpetrated this imcrew. the president said he is going to bring justice to them. we got one of them. they are in to your knowledge. we can't get access to them. he penned a letter signed by the. we need in there he had some success. >> steve: absolutely. senator graham, senator chambliss from the great state of georgia they got access to the guy. you would think that the white house would want to get access to the guy. nothing. here is lindsey graham. >> this duration is -- administration is trying to run out the clock when it comes to benghazi. this is a story that changes by the day. the president has been awol when this comes to benghazi, libya leadership. they have been denying and deceiving the public. the person i blame above all else is president barack obama. he has oversold the dismantling of al al qaeda
deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that employ the commander in chief can make a decision whether we wanted to rehire him. and i was comment together sen
